Ahmad has not paid Khums since becoming Shi 'a because he thought that he was not
subject to khums as he still owed his father some $4000 dollars.

A: It is a misunderstanding. Ahmad should at once fix a financial year for himself. In this
case, it is advisable that he should fix at the end of his year on the date he became Shi'a.
Then whatever was left on that day from his domestic expenses in cash or kind, he should
give its khumus. But now that day has passed, therefore he should end his year as soon
as he gets this letter's directives, and see what is left in grocery and cash - even 5 ounce
salt or one pound rice; and take its khumus out.
As for the debt, it does not exempt one from khumus. Let us say, Ahmad owes his father
4000 dollars and the father has put no pressure on him to pay it at once. Before the end of
year, Ahmad estimates that his savings would be about 1000 dollars, and before the end of
the year he pays an amount of 1000 dollars as part payment of the loan to the father. Then
he does not have to pay any khumus at the end of the year because he has got no saving.
But if he delays the payment and the end of the year arrives, then he will have to pay 200
dollars as khumus before he can use the remaining 800 dollars for any thing.
